Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Friday, November 14, 2008
TWU Spartans (3) vs. the University of Winnipeg Wesmen (1)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS HAND WESMEN FIRST LOSS OF THE SEASON

LANGLEY, British Columbia - The No. 9 ranked Trinity Western University men's volleyball team handed the No. 5 ranked University of Winnipeg Wesmen their first loss of the season with an impressive 3-1 (16-25, 25-17, 25-19, 25-18) victory Friday night at TWU's David E. Enarson Gym. The win moves the Spartans to 4-1, while the loss drops the Wesmen to 4-1.

"I don't know why we started the way we did. It was just a weird anomaly. After the set we just wrote it off and started fresh," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "We figured that it was going to take five sets to beat a team like Winnipeg so we knew that we were going to drop sets it just happened to be the first one."

TWU leftside hitter Marc Howatson (Victoria) was outstanding for the Spartans. He finished the match with 18 kills, on 63% efficiency, seven digs and a service ace. "That was a great outing for Marc," said TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "His passing was off in the first set, but offensively he is learning what to do. It was control high end volleyball at its finest."

The night did not start out in the Spartans favour. It was all Wesmen in the first set. The 2007 national champs, who put TWU out of the play-offs last season, dominated the first set. Winnipeg came out strong and never looked back as they led 8-3 at the first break, doubled it to 16-6 at the second before finishing of the set 25-16. Led by Justin Duff's (Winnipeg) perfect four for four attack the Wesmen hit at 40% and had three service aces to TWU's 20% attack and one ace.

The Spartan team that went on the floor for the second set was not the team that left after the first set. TWU was the team that controlled the set. The Spartans led 8-5 at the first break, 16-10 at the second and finished off the set 25-17. The Spartans turned their attacking numbers around in the second set as they finished at 50% to the Wesmen's 22%.

The third set was tight to the midway point. With the two teams tied at 11-11, the Spartans took four straight points and gained a little breathing room with a 15-11 lead. But the Wesmen came back to tie the set at 16-16. Then the serving of Chaim Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) and Howatson kept the Wesmen's attack off balance as the Spartans closed out the set with a 9-3 run to take the set 25-19 and a two to one lead in sets.

TWU's Ben Josephson commented between sets, "This one is going to be tough. Winnipeg is going to come out strong." He was right, as the Wesmen matched the Spartans point-for-point early on, with TWU leading 8-6 at the first break. The Wesmen kept the game tight, then with the Spartans up 13-12, TWU's Howatson and Josh Dornenbal (Edmonton) combined for three straight kills to give the Spartans 16-12 lead as they headed into the back end of the set. The Wesmen never recovered as Howatson finished off the set with his final kill of the match to give TWU the set and match 25-18.

In addition to Howatson the Spartans had strong performances from Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary) with 10 kills at 57% and four blocks and Doornenbal, Aaron Vandenbrink (Langley, B.C.) and Paul Lindemulder (Calgary) with eight kills each. The Wesmen were led by Andrew Town (Winnipeg) with 11 kills, five digs and two aces and Justin Duff with 11 kills, four digs and three blocks. TWU's Chaim Schalk led all players with a solid 46 set assists, while Winnipeg's Alan Ahow (Winnipeg) led in digs with nine.

The two teams will play again tomorrow night in Langley, B.C. Match time at TWU is set for 7 p.m.

Match Notes: TWU finished at 37%, while Winnipeg finished at 19%...the Spartans had seven team blocks, while the Wesmen had six...Winnipeg defeated TWU two matches to none in last year's Canada West quarter finals...
